Retro Throwback Socks are a fun and easy pair of socks for knitters of any skill level. Whether you’re new to sock knitting or this is your hundredth pair of, socks they’re a joy to knit for everyone. Using two contrast colors and one main color, you’ll be doing fun stripes on the top of the leg while the rest of the foot is knit in the main color. This is designed with a heel flap and gusset instructions and comes in three adult sizes. This is a unisex pattern so I can see people knitting a ton of them for gifts for family and friends. People can have fun combining different bases and colors to really make it their own.
